Video: The Raspberry Pi Zero's best feature is its size, but that comes at the cost of ports. DIYer Node figured out how to turn the Pi Zero into a dongle computer so it can tether itself directly to another computer's network through USB, making it much easier to use. With a few mods, Node turns the Zero into a dongle computer, which means you simply need to plug it into your computer and it will start sharing the network resources. From there, you can SSH or VNC into the Zero and control it using your laptop or desktop computer, no extra mouse, screen or keyboard required. This is great for setting up different SD cards or testing projects when you don't want to pull out a bunch of extra gear. Head over to YouTube for the full guide.
